Here’s your heads up to register for the 27th Annual Fitger’s 5k Run & Walk with Grandma’s Marathon benefiting the Young Athletes Foundation.  They are capping the entries at 2,000 and I guarantee it’ll fill up fast.  If you’ve been training for Grandma’s Half or Full Marathon, this is a great training race!

The weather for this race is unpredictable since it’s early in the Spring.  I’ve run it in everything from snow and rain to bright and sunny comfortable temps.  Whatever the case, it’s a great way to see where you are in your training process for the Grandma’s Half or Full Marathons.  It also accommodates to walkers allowing all to be involved with raising money for the Young Athletes Foundation.

The race course will take you East on Superior Street after leaving from in front of the Fitger’s complex.  You’ll go through downtown Duluth, into Canal Park and then circle round to finish back at Fitger’s.

The pre-race entry fee is $30 plus a processing fee.  The net proceeds benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF).  That is a program that Grandma’s Marathon started in 1990 that focuses on the promotion and development of healthy and active lifestyles for youth in several area counties, Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake and St. Louis.

2011 winner Justin Grunewald (15 minutes, 10 seconds) of Minneapolis and Carrie Tollefson (18 minutes, 20 seconds) of St. Paul were the top finishers at the 2015 event, Will you join last year’s winner’s in the 2016 Winner’s Circle?
